C.H. Robinson launches Navisphere Driver app in Europe

C.H. Robinson has announced the European launch of its Navisphere Driver mobile app, which allows drivers to view and update information on their loads while on the road.

The app automatically submits required in-transit updates and enables drivers to scan and upload documents to expedite payment processes.

In a statement sent to Post&Parcel, Jeroen Eijsink, president of C.H. Robinson Europe, said: “Today, companies that ship products require on-time updates on where their shipments are at any given moment.

“Before Navisphere Driver, drivers had to stop frequently or call from the road to manually provide tracking information. Now, the driver’s phone can do the work automatically for them.”

The app delivers load assignments through easy SMS text notifications. It uses geo-fence updates and the phone’s location service to automatically submit near real-time load updates each hour, or more frequently if the shipper requires it. Tracking lasts for the life of the load. Finally, the driver can use the phone’s camera and the app to scan and upload paperwork to begin the payment cycle.

“Today we support most of the European Telematic providers. That means your in-cab units can directly send stop and in-transit updates to C.H. Robinson when you carry a load for us,” Dave Fraas, general manager of the company’s IT group in Europe, added. “We are excited to provide this as an additional service to our carrier network, as part of our full suite of robust technology solutions.”
